‘The Windmill Massacre’ Review

14 November 2016 2:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Charlotte Beaumont, Patrick Baladi, Ben Batt, Fiona Hampton, Noah Taylor | Written by Suzy Quid, Chris W. Mitchell | Directed by Nick Jongerius

Massacre this, massacre that… Thanks to the infamy of Tobe Hooper’s now-classic 70s exploitation shocker The Texas Chainsaw Massacre it seems that we can’t escape a horrifying cinematic massacre… The latest film to share this horror moniker is The Windmill Massacre – an odd title, and an even odder location for a horror movie. But, to steal a much-maligned English idiom, don’t judge a book by its cover. Or in this case, a film by it’s title.

The Windmill Massacre tells the story of Jennifer, an Australian girl on the run who – after having her secret discovered at the Amsterdam home she works at as a nanny – joins a coach load of tourists on an idyllic rural tour of Holland’s world-famous windmills. However when »

*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by Mongrel Media. **there are a few minor spoilers here. Director: Nick Jongerius. Writers: Nick Jongerius, Chris W. Mitchell and Suzy Quid. Cast: Noah Taylor, Charlotte Beaumont, Patrick Baladi, Adam Thomas Wright and Ben Batt. Nick Jongerius' first feature film was initially titled The Windmill Massacre.

The Windmill Review

29 October 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dutch horror films don’t get any more on-brand than The Windmill. Maybe a horror movie about the little Dutch boy who plugged that dam and saved Holland? Nah. Big, wooden windmills acting as a gateway to Hell screams Dutch horror, much like the Australian main character, the Asian sidekick….alright, there’s a bit more diversity past locale stereotyping. In any case, director Nick Jongerius spills buckets of gore all over the Netherlands, as a demon dispatches sinners with his all-healing scythe. Heads roll in the name of soulful enlightenment, because karma is quite the bitch in this European slasher import. Grab your clogs and throw on a poncho, because Holland’s hottest sightseeing tour is about to get messy. Like messy/gory, but also messy scripting, and messy crafting.

The film’s protagonist ends up being Jennifer (Charlotte Beaumont), a homeless Aussie transplant who just got outted as being an illegal. »

Q&A with The Windmill Director Nick Jongerius

24 October 2016 3:51 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In his new film, The Windmill, Nick Jongerius transforms one of Holland's picturesque tourist attractions into a hub of blood-soaked horror. With XLrator Media releasing The Windmill on VOD and iTunes this Tuesday, followed by a theatrical release on October 28th, we caught up with Jongerius for our latest Q&A feature.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Nick. When did you first come up with the idea for The Windmill?

Nick Jongerius: My pleasure. Thanks for your interest in the film. I first started thinking about the idea for this film after Frankenstein's Army. Our investors at that time were really interested in Holland, especially Amsterdam—the dikes, windmills, clogs, etc. This triggered me. I thought, "What if we use these famous touristic symbols of Holland and drench them in blood? Sort of turning it upside down. From there we shot a proof of concept, »

"Without windmills, there would be no Holland." XLrator Media has debuted the first official trailer for indie horror The Windmill, originally known as The Windmill Massacre, from The Netherlands. The film is about an Australian girl escaping her past visiting The Netherlands, where she ends up on a tourist bus taking people to all the famous windmills in the country. The bus breaks down near an infamous windmill where "legend has it, a Devil-worshiping miller once ground the bones of locals instead of grain" and people begin to disappear. The cast includes Charlotte Beaumont, Noah Taylor, Patrick Baladi, Ben Batt, Tanroh Ishida and Fiona Hampton. This seems like it might be fun, with plenty of gore for horror fans. One review says this film "isn't your average slasher" so don't expect the usual going in. Check it out below. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Nick Jongerius' The Windmill, »

Movie Review – Chasing Robert Barker (2015)

22 June 2016 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chasing Robert Barker, 2015.

Directed by Daniel Florencio.

Starring Gudmundur Thorvaldsson, Patrick Baladi, Celyn Jones, Patrick Regis, Hilda Péter and Elizabeth Boag.

Synopsis:

A photographer turned paparazzi is caught in the downward spiral of a fabricated tabloid story.

Ahead of its premiere at the East End Film Festival this month, Kickstarter-funded Chasing Robert Barker has demonstrated that it has a steely backbone for grit, drama and realism, all wrapped up in a multi-national London-based production.

From Brazilian director Daniel Florencio, Chasing Robert Barker boasts a stunning cast, hailing from the likes of Hungary, Iceland, the UK and Libya. The film follows a professional photographer-turned-paparazzo, David (played by Gudmunder Thorvaldsson) through a short few heady days as he attempts to snap photos of actor Robert Barker for the Showbiz Editor (Olly, played by Patrick Baladi)  of a tabloid newspaper. All the while, David is dealing with a bad case of hyperthyroidism, leading to increased anxiety and tremours, »

Bodies: excellent medical drama not for the faint-hearted

We revisit brilliant, unflinching UK medical drama Bodies by Line Of Duty creator Jed Mercurio. Gory scenes ahead…

Did you know umbilical cords can snap? That if you give one a hard-enough tug it can ping loose of a placenta and spray flecks of high-nutrition gunk all over your face? Or that too firm a yank on a lodged placenta can pull a uterus clean out, starting a flesh avalanche that turns pounds of inside-meat into surprise outside-meat that slumps, glistening, like an exotic off-cut in a butcher’s shop window?

I’d apologise for the graphic imagery but it serves a purpose. To head off at the pass any comments of the ‘why are you writing about a medical drama on a site called Den Of Geek?’ variety. I promise you, there isn’t a landscape more sci-fi than the layers of spongey, mottled purple lurking beneath a tautly pregnant stomach, »

Line Of Duty: creator Jed Mercurio interview

We spoke to the Line Of Duty creator about series 3, Lindsay Denton, The Caddy, Jimmy Savile, tension, thrillers and more…

Warning: contains spoilers for Line Of Duty series 3, episode 5 (Nb interview took place before the finale aired. Here's a spoiler-filled post-finale chat).

As Line Of Duty viewers might expect from the man who’s turned the police interview into an art-form, Jed Mercurio is a very measured, practiced interviewee. He gives precise, categorical answers unfurred by the usual hesitations and rambling false starts. Bring up the perception that Line Of Duty’s series two finale was hard to follow and he explains, patiently, that the most reliable evidence we have suggests otherwise. He speaks fluently in terms of suppositions, anecdotal evidence, arithmetical means and statistical outliers. When he completes a given response, he simply stops talking.

Mercurio’s voice only became heated twice in the next six thousand words. »
